nathraoHave you officially informed the company about your pregnancy?
The actions of the company are in violation of Sec5 and 12 of Maternity Benefits Act.
Kindly put your points in writing to the company and ask for solution in view of legal position and protection offered by law.
If nothing comes out of your letter,consider going to Labour officer of the area with problems.
Covid is a big issue,but an employee cannot be dismissed,pay cut etc so easily.

umakanthan53If poster's description is factually correct, her forced/coerced resignation during her pregnancy tantamounts to" constructive dismissal". Therefore, in addition to the suggestions of Mr.Nathrao, it is advisable that she sends a thirty days notice to the employer of her intention of making a complaint to the District/State/National Authority under the Disaster Management Act,2005 also.

ansari-tabassumThank you all for your valuable response. I have decided to contact Labour officer in near future.
I have already sent an email to HR regarding my pregnancy details including letter from my doctor, confirming my pregnancy .
Company's HR is repeatedly calling and saying that they don't have work to give me and i am no longer contributing in productivity. Also she forced me to agree on 25% of salary till Nov month which i denied. I asked her to provide me these details in email (discussion which we had over call regarding my salary) but they didn't gave anything in written.
As of now i dropped an email to company asking my pending salary for last month.
Kindly add if any action need from my side.
Thanks in advance!

Nagarkar Vinayak LDear madam,
From the face of it, the company's management is knowingly attempting to deprive you of your legal right under the MB Act/aRules for full salary and protection from terminating during the pregnancy and also blatant violations of the Disaster Management Act.
As advised by the learned colleagues, keep sending appeals/ notices to the top authority demanding full salary and refraining from terminating your service during your pregnancy as well as lockdown period by keeping the government authorities in the loop.( Labour commissioner and District Authority)
